The Federation of Narvatus is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.213 billion Narvatusians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Usoreum. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Narvatusian economy, worth a remarkable 4,129 trillion ounces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 312,504 ounces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The blood on the hands of Leader may not be metaphorical, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, Narvatus's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Narvatus's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the holiest freedoms.

Narvatus is ranked 39,415th in the world and 133rd in The Free Nations Region for Healthiest Citizens, with 6.66 bananas ingested per day.
